Overgrown bushes restricting visibility.

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 11:33, Saturday 15 February 2020

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 3 minutes later. ref: 1999867.

Having submitted ref 1957884 you have decided to close it. While the bushes have been trimmed they have only been cut back to the line of the kerb. This means growth is directly onto the street restricting the view even further. I have already provided land reg info showing that the bushes are not on his garden. Even they were within the owners boundary they should be cut to behind the start of the kerb not level with the end of it. As you can see from the picture attached the haven't been trimmed straight and still overhang the road. As I said before a driving instructor has said they restrict visibility when you drive in or exit the street. I would welcome a conversation to understand your rationale 07795233893 if you can call.
